Hello WHUR Family,
Food not only fuels our bodies, it also awakens our senses. Nature has given us the best of everything when it comes to food. We now know that the most beautifully-colored foods are also the most nutritious. And, when used in recipes, combining foods can make a beautiful presentation, have intoxicating aromas, fill our mouths with wonderful textures and flavors and create memories. So, food is clearly more than just fuel. Food also provides energy. That energy is what we commonly call calories. Let’s explore the relationships and how to make it all work for us.

About Yenny Polanco:
I’ve been exercising since I was 14 years old! I started at home, as I was a very skinny and tiny girl that just wanted to make her body stronger. I began my training with bodyweight exercises, and then progressed to training with weights. I loved the physical results, but what I loved the most is how good it made me feel inside and out!
Most importantly, fitness doesn’t define me. I don’t train to be recognized…I don’t train to stand out…I train because I love it! I love the challenge, the grind, the endorphins, the sweat, and the pump! I love how it makes me feel. I push myself daily and I compete only with myself. Exercising and eating right enhances my life by enriching my mind, body and spirit. I am blessed to have the opportunity to inspire, motivate and share my passion, knowledge and my 22 years of experience with everyone.
